CMP welcomed almost 500 people to their 2nd Annual Open House hosted May 29th, by the Chilliwack RCMP Community Police Office.
People took the opportunity to meet officers from our local Community Police Office, as well as officers from the Lower Mainland police support sections including; the Integrated Police Dog Service, Emergency Response Team, Forensic Identification Section, Tac-Troup, Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team, and RCMP Recruiting.
“It was awesome we had a blast,” said one visitor. “My oldest is still talking about it.”
Pavilions operated by the City of Chilliwack Safer City, ICBC, and Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services, Agri-Watch and Crime Stoppers answered questions while providing valuable crime prevention information and safety tips to inquisitive guests.
Superintendent Deanne Burleigh, Officer in Charge of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment, along with Inspector Davy Lee, Operations Officer of the Chilliwack Community Police Office, thank everyone for their participation in making this year’s Chilliwack CPO open house a huge success.
“We have an amazing community where the police and citizens work together to make our streets safe. It was great to meet so many people and share with them a small glimpse of how their police department operates,” said Superintendent Burleigh.
